Probably you need to redesign your graphic to make it look better at small sizes. I think there is a way to embed bitmaps in a font for use at small sizes too, but I have never used it.

Is there an easy way to put the character that is in the glyph when it's empty in the Caption? ('Postscript name' maybe) Yes. Start a new font. This uses the WGL4.TTF template, which contains images of all the glyphs, and all the mappings and postscript names. Just copy the glyphs that you need to ...

No. It is not possible. Truetype fonts have no colour attribute. Contours can be filled with black • or filled with white o.

Try a DTP application like Page Plus (version 9 is now available very cheap) or Draw Plus 4. Type the text, break it into curves, then apply the different colours.

I'm not clear what you want from your image. Do you wish to create an outline font?

Thanks, but that doesn't help, as those characters are required for all fonts, not just Unicode ones. If one looks, for example, at Book Antiqua, it includes glyphs for Greek, Cyrillic, Line-draw, some geometric shapes and miscellaneous symbols. The later two are not likely to cause any difficulty, ...

Which Glyphs to Include in a Unicode Font?

If I start a new Unicode font, the program creates a blank template, which looks like it the WGL4 character set. It has 653 glyphs. I am contemplating creating a new font using Bitstream's Goudy font as a starting point, and submitting it to them. The reason being that they don't sell a Unicode vers...

Dick, if you use spacing modifier acute accent 02CA (Alter 714) then you do get aˊ , however, if you use combining diacritical mark acute accent 0301 (Alter 769) then you get á . The software should make the necessary vertical adjustment Á which it does in Wordpad, but not here apparently, and not...

I don't have Word, but this is what I get in Wordpad, and it seems to be the same with any font. I entered characters from the Numeric keypad, which is what the numbers refer to. I think it is best to design the Gaelic font so that you have the composite characters with diacritics, then you can type...

You added a full-stiop in the address Take a look at any standard Windows font. You will see that caps and lowercase use the same diacritic positioned differently to suit the base character. The lowercase i accented characters must use dotless ı (dec 305) instead of regular i. Gaelic seems to use a...

I don't see this problem. Only thing I can think of is that you turned on snap to grid by mistake.

I think the recommended size is about 300 pixels not 300 dpi. The image will only be large enough if the letter that you scan is 1" high. For regular 12 point text, which is 1/6" high at most, you would need to scan it at 1800 dpi to get a 300 pixel high image. After importing the image, Font Creato...
